Today, Thursday 2nd March, is World Book Day. This annual event has been going for 20 years and Stromness Academy Library has been celebrating this for around eight years with an informal lunchtime event focused on reading extracts from favourite books, discussing reading generally, and partaking of snacks. We usually run book swaps and a small book fair as well.
This year we are having a Peedie Book Fair, courtesy of Stromness Books & Prints who let use bring a small selection of books to sell in school. Pupils get a WBD £1 token which they can use in part payment at the book fair or at local bookshops. There are also second-hand books available for swapping out with own books.
Lunchtime will see a gathering in the library with ‘bring & share’ snacks (usually brought by Mrs Sinclair, the Librarian, but hoping others will have got the message.
A round up of the day will be posted in due course.
